LIVERPOOL have laid waste to the Premier League this season – and they're way ahead of the rest of Europe.
Jurgen Klopp's 'Jurgenaut' have racked up 82 points so far this season, which is better than any continental rival.
In a list compiled by Sportbible, the top 20 highest performing teams in Europe's biggest five leagues have been revealed – with some surprising names superseding some of the established elite.
Liverpool will at some point be crowned champions for the first time since 1990.
Even Paris Saint-Germain in second place, who are often mocked for playing so-called weaker opposition week-in week-out, are a staggering 14 points worse off in Ligue 1 on 68 than the Reds are in the Premier League on 82.
Five points further back from Thomas Tuchel's side in third are Juventus.
But just one point behind Maurizio Sarri's serial title winners are a more interesting, left-field name in Lazio.
Simone Inzaghi's team have wowed fans this season as Serie A's surprise package, leaving Inter trailing in their wake as they hunt down champions Juve.
Next come a cluster of clubs who perhaps feel that they should have done better this season – with high-flying Marseille the outlier.
Barcelona in fifth are top of LaLiga with 58 points, but this table shows that they have been off the pace compared with other leaders of Europe's elite divisions.
Following Quique Setien's side are Manchester City, rivals Real Madrid, Andre Villas-Boas' Marseille and Bayern Munich in ninth – on 55 points.
Antonio Conte's faltering Inter side round off the top ten on 54 points.
Some more interesting names line the bottom half, beginning with overachievers Leicester City.
Brendan Rodgers' side leave German duo Borussia Dortmund and RB Leipzig trailing in their wake, with French pair Rennes and Lille then sandwiching the penultimate Bundesliga side on this list, Borussia Monchengladbach.
Rounding off the table are entertainers Atalanta, who have scored 20 more goals in Serie A than leaders Juve this season – followed by Frank Lampard's Chelsea, Bayer Leverkusen and Sevilla.
Among the big names to miss out are Manchester United, Tottenham Hotspur and Atletico Madrid – but at least Atleti have the satisfaction of knowing they knocked Liverpool out of the Champions League.
